HATTIESBURG – “A-T-M”.
It, of course, means “automated touchdown machine”, and it’s all Hattiesburg coach Tony Vance could say when asked about scoring 42 points on Oak Grove.
Watch Southern Miss football highlights from its 24-17 loss to Kentucky from Saturday, Sept. 2.
The conference has provided more than seven minutes of footage from the game.
Southern Miss will host Southern (La.) Saturday at 6 p.m.
On this week’s episode of the PineBeltSPORTS, the mega showdown of Oak Grove-Hattiesburg is the topic of conversation. First, interviews with both coaches from earlier in the week are played, then a breakdown of the game from sports editor Camal Petro.
HATTIESBURG – Both teams are ranked in the Associated Prep Top 10 poll, both teams have started the season 3-0 and both teams are located in the city of Hattiesburg.
On Friday at 7 p.m., the Oak Grove Warriors and the Hattiesburg Tigers will renew their rivalry at D.I. Patrick Stadium in what should be an electric environment.
HATTIESBURG – Despite the loss last week to Sumrall, a lot of good things can be taken away for the Sacred Heart Crusaders, and they’ll try to use the confidence of hanging with a 4A team against this week’s opponent, North Forrest (1-2).
LUMBERTON – The Panthers had their chances to preserve their perfect record last week against Heidelberg, but a fumbled snap with less than two minutes was a big difference in the ballgame.
The loss hurts the win-loss column, sure, but in reality, it might benefit the team moving forward.
LAUREL – When asked, Petal coach Marcus Boyles said last year’s loss to Laurel isn’t lost on his mind, and he’s not afraid to remind his team of the 30-28 loss to the Golden Tornadoes as they prepare for the rematch this week.
There are a couple of take-a-ways from the loss he wants to remind his team about.
ENTERPRISE – So far, the switch for the Sumrall offense has worked out well. After the Week 1 loss to South Jones with the Wing-T offense, the Bobcats have won back-to-back games with junior Billy Garrity at quarterback with a more traditional style of offense.
With only two games under his belt, Garrity will only get better, too.
HATTIESBURG – Southern Miss coach Jay Hopson did what he said he was going to do with his quarterbacks, which was play both sophomore Keon Howard and redshirt junior Kwadra Griggs in Saturday’s 24-17 Week 1 loss to Kentucky.
